The other night after Tennis 4 of us decided to go to dinner. We talked about sports politics and many other things a bunch of guys out for a meal and a couple of beers talk about. One of the things that struck me and I hear so often is, "The government is bailing out the brokerage houses. The go...

A couple of weeks ago I posted some pictures of flowers and said spring is coming. Of course when I woke up this morning it was snowing like crazy. Now yesterday it was in the 60's.

This is the one week anniversary of my "moment of fame" in the New York Times Escapes section. I was flying high because my adorable Big Canoe cabin on 9073 Yearling Lane was a featured listing. I was initially concerned that my charming 2 bedroom, 2 bath log cabin would pale in comparison with t...

It is 100% true that real estate is not for everyone. When the market is great... then everyone's happy and the flowers bloom while the sun shines and the birds sing! You take your kids to Disney and stay at the park with Cinderella and Jack Sparrow at your beckoned call! Then there are the skinn...

OK, I may be the most optimistic person in the world but I occasionally admit that we are in a market that calls for creativity!! Two options I always bring up are the Lease Purchase and the Lease Option. These options work for owners that wish to ride out the market and don't mind having renters...

As Johnny Carson would have done, I am putting on the Swami hat and saying the Answer is...Big Canoe and Benttree will have a a mixed year.

Big Canoe real estate in Georgia is my main focus as some of you already know. Our large mountain community is chock full of agents, and most of us tread lightly so as not to step on each other's toes.
